    Because that's what they want to do. There were a massive cut in numbers for PGCE's this year, they reflect the lack of jobs. It's like any other job these days, competitive!
    They could apply for a job in another part of the country.

    The job situation isn't uniform across the country - there are very few vacancies in Wales, the south west, Scotland and the north and there are more jobs in general in more urban areas (from what I've been told and can tell at any rate).

    Simply because they want to! In general the job situation in this country isn't great..nobody should be put off with 'what ifs'..life is too damn short, if you have a vocation, follow it.

    On the job front note - I live in the North West and yes there are many NQT's looking for jobs, however the school where I work is expanding to two form entry from this September because there is a huge shortfall of places within the primary sector, ours is not the only school either...

    There is a lack of jobs in all professions at the minute. I will probably be redundant in a year anyway, so I might as well train in a good profession and take my chances than take my chances without a PGCE.

    because there arent many jobs regardless of what career you take at the moment!
    because for some of us, teaching is the only career we've ever dreampt of, wanted to do, planned our lives around.
    because teaching is such an amazing and rewarding career to have regardless of potential job finding issues
